They're not sized down but they are pretty wide. Notice that the Pencil 164 and the Cafe Racer 159 is basically much the same board spec wise. They have a different camber version but otherwise are just the same board. The 164 Cafe Racer is wider and it has less taper.I am a 65 yr old 6' 1" 200 lbs lifelong longboard goofy foot surfer and 25 yr snowboarder. Super wide feet 4E and 11.5 boot using a burton ruler wide( Soft boot). I Only stick to carving blue groomers these days and have decided on the korua cafe racer or pencil just don't know the best size. I currently ride a Ride TMS 161 which is now 6-8 seasons old Question is .............. is the 159 to short or the 164 to tall. Are these boards sized up or down
If you want less taper and the wider board I'd go with the 164 Cafe Racer. I don't think you'll be bothered with the length. It's more if the width will bother you. There's almost a whole cm difference in taper between the 159 and the 164.
I'm about 95-100 kg and ride the Pencil plus 164 (same width as the 159 Cafe Racer). You can really feel the taper and the width of it. Once on edge the width isn't a problem even for my 8,5 boots. I sometimes wish that it had just a bit less taper though.
Unless you are going to ride powder I don't think there's a question about picking the Cafe Racer (I have only been on the Pencil, but I don't see a reason not picking the full camber Cafe Racer for carving).
